Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice 4K Xbox One X Trailer Released

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was announced last week for Xbox One, and now, we can see the game in action, all captured directly from Xbox One X and presented in 4K and HDR.

From the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry, comes a warrior’s brutal journey into myth and madness. Set in the Viking age, a broken Celtic warrior embarks on a haunting vision quest into Viking Hell to fight for the soul of her dead lover.

Created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will pull you deep into Senua’s mind. Ready up for launch, April 11th.

No Man’s Sky Comes to Xbox One Later This Year

In August 2016, a small indie development team Hello Games, released the hugely ambitious and highly-anticipated No Man’s Sky on PS4 and PC. Millions of gamers worldwide have spent hundreds of millions of hours voyaging across its vast, procedurally-generated sandbox universe – exploring, trading and fighting in a living breathing universe.

In the last 18 months, Hello Games and No Man’s Sky’s community of avid followers have continued to build out the game through 3 major updates (Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises) and dozens of smaller patches.

“We are calling this No Man’s Sky NEXT because it is an important next step in a journey for No Man’s Sky, for Hello Games and for our devoted community.” said Sean Murray, founder at Hello Games. “Each update for No Man’s Sky has been more successful than the last; this was especially true of our last update Atlas Rises. It emboldens the team to push ourselves further. This journey is far from over, and it’s exciting to be working again on something you know will surprise people.”

Xbox One owners will be able to explore this vast procedurally generated universe later in 2018, including all content developed to date and a lot more surprises from Next yet to be announced. 505 Games will distribute the physical Xbox One version worldwide. As soon as we have a solid release date, we’ll let you know.

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered edition is Coming to PC and Consoles

THQ Nordic announce that Red Faction Guerrilla will be fully re-Mars-tered (pun proudly intended) and released on PC, PlayStation 4 and across the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X in Q2 2018. The game will go by the name of Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered and “destruction” will remain its middle name.

Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Red Faction: Guerrilla still defines the limits of destruction-based game-play with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.

The Pillars of the Earth – The Trilogy is out Now

Having already released two chapters capturing the spirit of Ken Follett’s bestseller, today sees Daedalic sign off with the third and final part of The Pillars of the Earth, bringing the trilogy together in one neat package for the first time.

The Pillars of the Earth: Eye of the Storm signs off the entire adventure, bringing the epic conclusion to Follett’s legendary book to life. Players who already own the first two chapters from Daedalic on Steam – From The Ashes and Sowing The Wind – will automatically unlock the third and final chapter, with play seamlessly moving from one to the other upon completion.

Altogether, The Pillars of the Earth trilogy adapts classic adventure mechanics to tell the tale of the fictional English town of Kingsbridge in the 12th century. Players take on the roles of Jack, Aliena and Philip, with their decision making having a direct impact on the events of the book. The story focuses on the town’s efforts to build a cathedral to secure wealth and security.

Set in the midst of The Anarchy – a civil war that raged throughout England and Normandy for almost two decades – The Pillars of the Earth is a story wrapped in intrigue and conspiracy surrounding the big events of the era, as the people of England find the levers of power up for grabs.

Play doesn’t focus on the kings and queens of the day, however, but rather how the political turmoil impacts the people of the street. It’s an epic tale that examines life in medieval England through the story of this town, and the courageous people fighting for its survival.

Better performance means more valuable rewards, but remember – be prepared for everything. The Prison Island will held a community contest later in April so stay alert for the full info.

Not Tonight Revealed via New Trailer

Not Tonight is a post-Brexit management game, fusing a time-pressure RPG with a politically charged story where every decision matters. Will you join the resistance and fight the regime — or keep your head down and hope that one day this will all be a distant memory?

In an alternative Britain where Brexit talks have collapsed, an extreme far-right government has taken power. Citizens of European heritage have been rounded up and exiled. Forced out of your previous life, you find yourself in the midst of a booming gig economy, fighting to scrape by and return to the city you call home. The game will arrive on STEAM soon, and will come to console later this year.
